2006 World Tour US Leg 2 Compilation

The second part of 2006 World Tour started in Pittsburgh and then Pearl Jam travelled West, opening 6 shows for Tom Petty among other dates, and finished at gorgeous Gorge Amphitheatre not far from Seattle. Every show was fantastic, the band was in absolutely perfect shape, crowds were great, and even warming up for Tom Petty the band enjoyed loud support and singalongs.

In this compilation Corduroy and Better Man from Denver represent different approach for keys as Boom Gaspar was absent and replaced by Benmont Tench from Tom Petty's band. Bu$hleaguer is with "Georgie-boy" vocal intro. In Little Sister Ed's mistake was rectified with additional solo by Mike. Present Tense is one of the slightly alternated extended outro solo versions, as well as Big Wave. Leash "fox-news-fuck-you" is just a powerful pinnacle of the set, leading to a Yellow Ledbetter "good-bye".

2006 World Tour US Leg 1 Compilation

The first leg of self-titled Pearl Jam album promotion tour (Avocado tour, as Ed mentioned) focused on the North-East of the USA. This leg included shows in large cities such as New-York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago. The band was in very good energetic mood, Ed's voice was great from the start and in the final shows was absolutely fantastic. After a long break and endless fans requests, Leash had returned to set-lists rotation. Also this tour provided us with many interesting improvs and alterations, some new covers. In my opinion, the most interesting show of this leg was Toronto, night 2 (and night 1 was very good too). The loudest crowd was in Boston, but overall audience singing was nothing in comparison to, for example, US tour in the same cities in 2010.

For this compilation I've selected some improvs, Alive with much longer final solo (Leash with longer solo went to Vs. Live compilation). After playing I Got Id Eddie revealed a secret that the core of this song had been taken from Neil Young's Cinnamon Girl and played it as a snippet. During Long Road's solo Mike played very unusual U2-like riffs. Daughter and Rearviewmirror feature new tags. Before Rats Matt played drum intro. Very good version of Immortality also includes intro (Ed plays it from time to time) and gorgeous extended outro. And the grand-finale for this compilation is Yellow Ledbetter. After very passionate and energetic Crazy Mary (slow tempo version) and Alive it takes easy and relaxed as Eddie couldn't hold his laughter at something during the first verse and then finished the song with the snippet of Rolling Stones' Beast Of Burden. Also check reworked Garden and more alterations in other songs.
